Simple Joys


I felt the need to post something random today. I've noticed that the majority of my posts here recently have been the weekly, scheduled out ones...not that there's anything wrong with that. I like the structure and schedule. But I also enjoy just updating you on what's going on in my life.

We're pretty much all set up in the house. The only room left to complete is the nursery, which we seem to be working on a little bit here and there. It makes the process more enjoyable and exciting, I think. We have the crib assembled and all set up.

The sweet Mama Sheep and Lamb were made by my Mom from this darling tutorial.

Every time I walk by the nursery I want to just walk in and stare at how comfy the crib looks or sit back and relax in the rocker. The first night we had the crib set up, Hubby told me he wanted to sleep in the nursery because of how comfy it felt every time he walked in. What's great is that we could actually do that because we have the futon set up to serve as additional seating/change of scenery.

Let's see, what else...my Lil' Bro is in town visiting us. He's been here since last Wednesday and it's been fun hanging out with him. He and my Hubby did a bunch of fun NASCAR stuff this past weekend since the Brickyard was going on and tonight they're off to Cincinnati to see John Mayer.

Our Little Man is definitely growing. Today is the first day of our Third Trimester. I can definitely feel the many differences that are accompanied with that. Little Man is so active, making me much more aware of him. It feels like and looks like my Bump is getting bigger every day, which I'm loving. There really is something so beautiful and extraordinary about being pregnant. I should have an updated photo next week (I'm trying to space them out every 4 to 5 weeks). I also have my glucose test next week. Yum. Can't wait to drink pure sugar water. My nesting instinct is definitely beginning to kick in. I have quite the laundry list of projects that I want to complete before our Little Man gets here. I'm hoping to get started on some of those this weekend. I've got a few baby gifts to finish up for this Momma and this Momma, so as soon as those are complete, I will be in high-baby-making-stuff-gear.

So there's a bit of an update for you. Life is beautiful. I have no complaints, and even in the moments when I could complain, I'm reminded by how great God is and I count it a joy to be living and serving Him with each day.

LOVE the green color choice for the nursery. That is the same color I painted Ellie's crib before she was born since we didn't know if we were having a boy or girl...i LOVE it!- and the lambs are soooo super sweet!
